  • Had a great time! The drive there was filled with interesting facts and the tour in the Tangier was equally great.

  • The tour was terrific - our guide Carlos was thorough,attentive and organized meeting the needs of a small group 11 of diverse individuals and age groups. The mini bus was spotless and the drive to and from Seville to tarifa was done safely and professionally. Long day though - 16 hours- but broken up well with walks, short rides,camel ride, some shopping.loved the drive around the neighbourhoods of tangier - just gave us a sense of how both rich, middle class and poor live. Moroccan guide spoke 5 languages and was very engaging.Only recommendation is for via tour to communicate a few days before the tour regarding pickup - appreciated that Carlos did send an email the day before - but when you are travelling in a new country earlier notice is better. This is the thirdviatourvwe have booked in the past few years - always professional and knowledgeable leaders!

  • Carlos and Rahsid were great guides. The trip is long but worth it in my opinion. I liked having a guide for my first trip into the narrow and twisty streets of the Casbah and Medina - Im sure I wouldnt have risked it without one, or a GPS and a Map and... well, you get the idea. We had a lovely lunch and time to shop. Yes, there were stops to get a demonstration no obligation to buy. Ours were a Berber weaving shop - great video opp, and a pharmacy where we learned about Moroccan oil and creams. The street vendors are persistent, but dont yell at you like other places.
    My suggestions if you are thinking of booking, is to bring along a snack or a sandwich. You leave before breakfast and you get home just at the tail end of dinner. For the tour company, I suggest finding a way to add a meal on the way home, and perhaps a stop for breakfast pasteries. Some of our group okay, maybe just me were pretty starving when lunch time came.
    Note: not for people with mobility issues. Tangier is not wheelchair friendly, and Im not sure how much value a walker would have on the cobblestones. Also most shops and restaurants have stairs.
    Thanks for the great day!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Good value for the price. Everything went as planned. I felt I got a good feel for Tangier

  • The tour guide in Morocco was great! He did a great job of managing a HUGE group. He was friendly, and showed us a range of places and lifestyles in Tangier. The German coordinator in Spain was not very helpful or personable! But it was worth it to see Morocco for a day

  • This is a great tour but beware it is long. We were picked up at 7:30am and dropped at 11:30pm. Tangiers was great.

  • This would have been an enjoyable tour if the 'shopping experience' had not involved such high pressure sales tactics. For me, it spoilt the trip. Our driver to and from Tarifa was as good as many tour guides: he arranged for us to have breakfast, inexpensively, shortly before we reached Tarifa gave us the opportunity to look around the castle while he sorted out our tickets then helped us fill in the entry forms for Morocco and Spain. He also, on the way, gave us interesting information about the places we passed. In Tangiers we were driven round to various landmarks, where our guide told us about their significance, and there was also the possibility of taking a camel ride. Neither I nor my companion wished to do so, but were not pestered to join in. Next we were taken for a 'typical' Moroccan meal in a lavishly decorated - in the Moorish style - restaurant. Everyone enjoyed the three course meal provided, though I'd expected it to be more subtly flavoured. To my taste it was rather bland. After this, our guide took us rapidly through the Kasbah and provided us with some fascinating information about this historic place. However, we were then taken upstairs in a large carpet warehouse - I'd wondered if we were going to see some local artisans! - and subjected to very aggressive marketing. Both I and my companion felt completely trapped and unable to leave without buying something. Carpets are not cheap. The small mat I ended up buying would have been half the price and twice the quality if bought here in the UK. I'd imagined that the 'shopping opportunity' would have ben similar to that in the Albaicin area of Granada: many competing stalls and one salesman, not a pack, at each. My advice to anyone taking this tour would be to take a very small amount of money and leave your credit card behind! Then you can't be pressured into buying anything too expensive.

  • OK, the tour was good in the sense that everything pretty much ran on time and it was well coordinated. Our drivers were very good and the ferry was nice. We wanted to go to Africa to say that we had been there. We learned much about the history of Tangier. The food at lunch was good. The tour through the market was frustrating because it was designed for the locals to sell stuff to the tourists. We got to see some beautiful places and rode a camel. There is plenty of walking, but not many steps or very steep. It is a long, long day. I would recommend it if you want to go to Tangier, but once is enough.

  • We were not able to complete our day. We were taken back to the ferry because rough waters changed the time of the return trip on our very large car ferry. We were foot passengers.
    I wanted to know if we could take a different ferry, but we weren't given the option. Most of the other ferries continued to run, as far as we could see on the schedule. Safety first, of course, but I felt that only our ferry had a schedule change.
